Sliding Hernia: Reason for Pinto’s Recurrence
As we have seen, SH is neither so rare nor troublesome for the skilled surgeon. More importantly SHs can have nearly the same prognosis as that for non-SHs. By this view Mike M made a hasty claim in attributing Pinto’s reccurence to the presumed difficulty of SH surgery.
He discounted Pinto’s pain experience in his taxi ride from the hospital apparently based solely on Mike M himself having an uneventful taxi ride after his own surgery. Because his ride was painless, by Mike M’s reasoning, therefore, Pinto couldn’t have really had any trouble. Again following Mike M’s reasoning, Pinto probably moreover was careless in his subsequent daily living—–for example the mindless lifting of heavy objects too soon before full recovery.
